Meet the Character Monday -- Will!

Will was inspired by my imaginary twin brother growing up. My siblings are all lots older than me, and there weren’t a lot of kids in our neighborhood, so I invented a brother to play with. All these long years later, I finally had an opportunity to bring that imaginary brother to life in Will. He’s strong, loyal, caring, funny and sarcastic. Even though he's trapped in a colony, hunted by his own family, and unwilling to put his personal life first, he's never bitter. He is the tie that holds Ari to her humanity when she feels like she's a monster.

"I'm an uber-powerful warrior. I don't need a babysitter. I need a brother who reminds me that I'm not a monster. Who loves me and always has my back. Who reminds me that I still have hope. If not for you, I would be lost. Remember that, Will." ~ Ari, Feudlings in Smoke

This is how I picture Will in my head, except with red and black hair
